Audience Reviews for The Three Musketeers
- Robert Athos: [to D'Artagnan] My friend, my friend. My young country friend, when will you learn about Paris? By now Richelieu, without the slightest question, knows even the color of your underpants.
- Robert Athos: [preparing to duel D'Artagnan with an injured right arm] You'll find the left hand most confusing.
- D'Artagnan: Well, Athos, in a matter of hours we'll be on the road to Spain with a price on our heads. Will we live to see France again?
- Robert Athos: Will we live to see Spain?
- Robert Athos: To die among friends. Can a man ask more? Can the world offer less? Who wants to live 'till the last bottle is empty? It's all-for one, d'Artagnan, and one for all.
- D'Artagnan: I kissed the Queen's hand!
- Constance Bonacieux: Have you no higher ambitions?
- D'Artagnan: Porthos, when did a wound ever come between you and a fight?
- Porthos: [lying on his stomach] Well, unfortunately the position of this one comes between me and my horse.
